Nature Box Review

Nature Box was founded as a way to help people eat healthier.  This monthly subscription box service provides subscribers with five nutritionist approved snacks every month right to their door steps for only $19.95 with free shipping.
The Nature Box promise is that the snacks that are included within each box are made with wholesome ingredients and minimally processed if at all. There is no high fructose corn syrup, no partially hydrogenated oils, no trans fat, no artificial sweeteners, no artificial colors and no artificial colors. However, the snacks are packed in a facility that also processes free nuts, peanuts, milk, wheat, egg and soy so people with allergies to any of the aforementioned would probably not be a subscriber.
To give some idea of what one would be receiving in a Nature Box here are the contents of the February 2013 Nature Box:
1) Blueberry Nom Noms:  These would be most comparable to a cookie. The bag came with four of these snacks which were 90 calories each. They contained oats, honey, blueberries, almonds, pumpkin seeds, etc. Out of all the snacks within the box this one was the one that had the most processing and the most ingredients. The taste would appeal to someone who really enjoys oatmeal cookies with blueberries. They are very soft and easy to chew. 
2) Dark Cocoa Almonds:  These are chocolate covered almonds. At first glance it looks as though it is just powder but with further investigation there is a very nice layer of chocolate covering the almond. The serving size was one ounce which had 150 calories and four servings per container. These are good to just take a handful and snack on. The box contained a recipe to make Almond Joy flavored popcorn and the Dark Cocoa Almonds would be used. This would be the most popular snack for someone with a sweet tooth.
3) Vanilla Macaroon Granola: Nature Box always likes to have at least one granola product within its box. This granola is good to mix with Greek or regular yogurt or could even be used as a topping for baked apple crisp. It has dried pieces of coconut  within it as well as almonds. The serving size is half a cup which contains 260 calories and two and a half servings per container.  
4) Honeycomb Sunflower Kernels: Some people don't like to eat sunflower seeds, but these sunflower seeds taste just like honey. There are so many sunflower kernels in the container it feels like it is a never ending supply. They are perfect for snacking, just like intended for.  The serving size is an ounce which is 160 calories and there are five servings per container.
5) Nature's Bounty:  This is just an assortment of organic nuts and berries (and the label says organic in front of every ingredient) including sunflower nuts, cranberries, apricots, raisins, soy nuts, almonds, apples and walnuts.  These aren't very sweet, but they will soothe any sudden hunger pangs or the urges to snack.The serving size for these is a fourth of a cup at 130 calories a serving with three and a half serving per container.
Nature Box is partnered with Feeding America and donates one meal for every box sold to feed the millions of children in America who go hungry.
